AMG National Trust Bank will open a new building meant to send a message to its wealth management clients that the bank is in the business of preserving history and tradition.
The 45,000-square foot building in Greenwood Village is meant to resemble The Palace of the Rhine in Strasbourg, France — complete with curving staircases, lion sculptures, claw-foot antique furniture and a circular events and meeting room located under a domed-ceiling.
The company, a privately held commercial bank and investment management firm based in Englewood, is moving 91 employees into the three-story building.
The building design is meant to send a message of history, tradition and sturdiness, said Karanne Burdick, marketing manager at AMG National Trust Bank.
AMG would not reveal the cost of the building. Its community concierge Kelley Bergmann did say he spent more than one year cultivating the furniture, which he said was made in Europe.
Bergmann will oversee the bank’s entrepreneurial co-working space and offices for rent, called the Fanum Club, also within the new building. The club has a full-sized kitchen, co-working space and gym and the office space will be rented to “serial entrepreneurs.”
AMG provides investment management, commercial banking, financial counseling, trustee services, tax planning and return preparation, access to alternative investments, a donor-advised charitable foundation, and related services. It manages more than $3.8 billion in assets for clients both nationally and internationally. Its main banking office is in Boulder, and it has wealth management and trust offices in Chicago, Cheyenne, Wyo., Morristown, N.J., and Virginia Beach, Va.
